» Everybody Wins!
Everybody Wins! is a lunchtime literacy mentoring program pairs second and third grade students with a caring adult to build a meaningful relationship while sharing conversation, good books, and literacy-related activities for one hour a week. These consistent, one-on-one experiences increase a child’s opportunity for success, both academically and in life.
Throughout the year, the students look forward to spending time with their Reading Buddies and benefit from the encouragement of a caring adult and opportunity to read stories together, while mentors enjoy sharing their love of books with their student.
In the 2014-2015 school year, 221 pairs at Pittsburgh Faison in Homewood, Pittsburgh King in the North Side, Pittsburgh Phillips in the South Side, and Pittsburgh Weil in the Hill District read thousands of books together!
